    Route Overview

    Let's take a look at our Annapurna Base Camp Trek route.

    The journey commences upon your arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, Kathmandu. As you exit the airport, you will spot one of our representatives holding a display board for Nepal Hiking Team. They will accompany you to the hotel where you can relax for the night. Next, we will embark on a picturesque drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara.

    Upon arrival, you will spend the night resting and preparing for the hike. We will begin the hike towards Tikhe Dhunga and proceed to Ghorepani. The following morning, we will rise early and hike to the Poon Hill viewpoint. From this viewpoint, you will be rewarded with magnificent vistas of Dhaulagiri, Machapuchare, Hinchuli, the Annapurna ranges, Dhampus Peak, and Dhaulagiri II.

    After witnessing the sunrise at Poon Hill, we will continue our journey to Tadapani, Chhomrong Village, Dovan, and eventually reach Deurali. Finally, we will reach our ultimate destination, the Annapurna Base Camp, via Machhapuchhre Base Camp. From there, we will descend to Bamboo, Jhinu Danda, and then drive back to Kathmandu.

    Best Time

    So, you are eager to broaden your horizons and plan the Annapurna Base Camp Trek soon. However, there is a crucial factor that can significantly impact your entire trekking experience: the weather conditions. While the Annapurna Base Camp Trek is accessible throughout the year, the optimal time to embark on this adventure is during March-May or September-November.

    These months are considered the most favorable for the trek, as the weather conditions are conducive to hiking and can greatly enhance your overall experience.

    We strongly advise against trekking during the monsoon and winter seasons. This is because you will encounter heavy rainfall and snowfall during your hike, which can pose a high risk of injuries and natural disasters. Therefore, it is highly recommended to choose only the best time for the ABC trek to ensure your safety and avoid such situations.

    Difficulty Level

    Before finalizing your trip, a question that is likely to cross your mind is, "How difficult is the Annapurna Base Camp Trek?" We aim to address this question and provide you with information about the trek's difficulty level.

    First and foremost, it's important to note that the Annapurna Base Camp Trek is considered a moderate trek. The difficulty level of any trek is influenced by two main factors: the hiking routes and the elevation.

    Let's discuss the hiking routes involved in the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The trail comprises both uphill and downhill terrains, and you can expect to walk for approximately 5-6 hours per day, with regular breaks. While some sections may be relatively steep, they can be easily overcome. With regular breaks and breathtaking scenery along the way, you will find the trek manageable and enjoyable.

    Next, let's talk about the elevation of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek. The highest point you will ascend to is 4,130 meters at the Annapurna Base Camp. Hiking at this altitude carries a relatively low risk of altitude sickness. Additionally, the itinerary for the ABC trek is designed to allow for sufficient acclimatization days, ensuring that your body adjusts gradually to the altitude.

    Therefore, rest assured that the Annapurna Base Camp Trek can be accomplished by hikers of various skill levels, including beginners.
